    Update on Viper

    Worked on skinning the viper today. I have the Nacels, cooler intake, and guns left to finish. Here are a few pics of the progress.

    Thank you Guys!!

    I just want to say thanks to all of the guys making these models for us to make!! I am working on a battlestar right now, it will probably take most of the summer to make, but with you guys bringing out more models this will take me right through the winter also!! Thank you again!! Please keep posting pic's of your BSG models, I enjoy watching everybodies models!!!

    For a Pilot

    Hmmm. . . . Considering the size and a few wild guesses, I think I'd break out the epoxy putty and a GI Joe or Star Wars guy for the pilot.
    "Now starring . . . Princess Amidala as Starbuck!" Or if you are really lucky and have one of the original BSG action figures of Starbuck or Apollo, you could put him in there.

    It's good to see that this thread is still going.

    The viper is looking good.

    I've had this link for a while Star Trek: Armada 2, Star Trek: Armada 2 Downloads - FileFront.com I know it's star trek armada/armada2, but look down the right side. Some guys are doing a mod for battlestar, both series. Graphics look good. Heres the forum Battlestar Armada It's not been updated in a while though. I hope it's still in development.

    Not sure who uses this, but I read in one of the posting that some of you guys use water colors to do touch ups, what kind do you use?? Also what kind of printers do you guys use to get such great detail??? I am using a Brother 420CN Printer and 110lb cars stock!!! I have tried diffferent pounds of paper but, I like 110lb the best!! Thanks!!:thumb:

    Hey I was wondering the other night. What's happening with the Big G? I thought she was moments away from release?

    Sorry to butt in here.... Galactica is coming along, I almost have all the the pieces built but have had little time to work on it.

    Started printing out Jays Viper MKII and Paragons clean page but while Jays PDF prints out fine, Paragons re-do PDF prints out very large. I tried to set the printing parameters to " fit to page" with no luck.. not even knowing if that would be the same scale as Jays Viper.

    Any advice? Thanks
  15. yeah i have that problem to the only way ive been able to fix it is by copying the pages into photoshop and printing there but keep the scale the same

    Thank you for the info guys!!! I was wondering also can you take one part of a model and enlarge it so you can make a bigger model , instead of blowing up the whole sheet and using a bigger printer?? I know this might sound stupid, but I donot play around too mich with settings!!

    Almost Done Latest pics

    Having a hectic week, we have an LSET in ten days so been on twelve’s, but I have been slowly finishing the build on the viper. All that’s left is to work on the tail some more my test build on that piece was garbage. Then work on reorganizing the files and include some easy instructions for release. In the pics so far I haven't edge colored anything, would be an awesome model the next time I build!
